- About us -
Welcome to Catesbi
We support parents, guardians and professionals.
And most of all, children with difficulties learning and challenging behaviour.
Behaviour is always a form of communication.
But due to ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences), diagnoses and/or poverty it is sometime difficult for children to communicate their needs.
We combine the science of behaviour with empathy and nurturing approach.
Most of our work is focused on improving communication skills.
Each child in our care receives individualised positive behaviour support they need.

Our Annual Report
“Children are at the centre of everything we do. Count us in, if you know a child who could do with positive behaviour support.”
Suzie Repova trained as a Social Worker. She gained a BA in Social Work, an MSEd in Social Education and postgraduate in Autism and Learning at Aberdeen University. Later, she obtained certificate as a Registered Behaviour Technician at the University of Belfast.
Suzie has worked with children on the autistic spectrum since 2007. She sat as the chair of a Children’s Panel. She was a foster carer for a child with autism – an experience which she says changed her life. Unfortunately, she experienced just how badly children with support needs can be let down. As a result she has decided to do everything she could to make sure, that children have access to early behaviour support.
Originally from Slovakia, Suzie lives in Newport, Fife, with her husband, two young children and an over-enthusiastic Labrador. Her hobbies are pole dancing and anything to do with cakes.
Suzie is available to talk about your support needs.
